If you do have to touch the paint, doing so immediately after washing would be the safest time to do so.
In my other thread you said it was ok to wax by hand with a micro fiber.

I hate my ocd!

Well of course you have to touch the paint to wax. Junkman is just making a point that the less you touch it, the less damage you can impart on your paint. In a hypothetical sense, if you NEVER touched your paint (highly unlikely) then you couldn't get any swirls at all. Obviously that's not possible in the real world, but he's just illustrating his point.
